This is a very old family cemetery located between Taylor Branch & Wall Creek (formerly Harry Fork Creek) on Wall Hollow Road. There were field stones at graves years ago among a grove of cedar trees on a hill. Today that property has been cleaned up and the field stones are no longer there. In 1820 Etheldred 'Dreddy' & Amy 'Taylor' Wallace owned the property. Dreddy's parents, William D. Wallace Jr & Susannah 'Exum' Wallace, owned the neighboring property. After much study by family historians it has been determined that William, Susannah and Amy are buried there.

Dreddy and Amy separated in 1850 and he was living several miles away with his youngest son, George Washington Wallace, at the mouth of Hayes Fork Creek where in converges with Saline Creek off of Antioch Road. Family historians have also determined that Dreddy would be in the George Wallace Cemetery on that property.
